I used to use a proxy in school all the time so I could check email, chat on AIM, etc.
I tried using several proxies lately and none of them seem to work. The biggest problem I seem to have is slowed connection, or even just complete termination of the connection.
AIM me or whatever if you feel like helping me out.
Also, feel free to flame me or w/e you faggots have to do because I don't know about this.
